Another reminder of how badly the Scalia Five damaged America

This is the man we elected President in 2000. And the Supreme Court's Scalia Five put Dick Cheney and George Bush in the Presidency instead. This surely ranks with the Supreme Court's most infamous, destructive, heinous rulings, like the Dred Scott decision, Plessy v. Ferguson (approving state segregation) and the upholding of the internment of Japanese-Americans during the Second World War.



And while we're reminiscing about the overturning of the results of the 2000 election, let's not forget the massive dysfunction of our national press corps which contributed so mightily to that disastrous result.

FEATURED QUOTE

"It is the logic of our times
No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."
